Adoption Loans

HFLS provides interest-free loans of up to $25,000 to help cover adoption-related costs including agency fees, advertising costs, travel fees, and birth parent medical expenses.

Adoption Loans require the submission of a completed Home Study and documentation of cost (invoices or bills). The loan is made in installments based on the costs incurred by the borrower. Loans are repayable in equal monthly installments over up to five years. Guarantors must have a minimum family income of $50,000 per year.
